A 'Male Activist' Edited The Women Out Of 'Star Wars' And They’re Getting Roasted

By Mark Pygas

From Princess Leia to Rey, and Padmé if you acknowledge the existence of the sequels, it's fair to say that Star Wars wouldn't be the global phenomenon it is today without strong female characters. 

So it came as a surprise to many when Pedestrian reported that a male activist had made a fan edit of Star Wars: The Last Jedi which cuts out the film's female characters, reducing the running time from around 155 minutes to just 46 painstaking, misogynistic minutes. The angry fan then illegally uploaded the film online. As one does when they are completely out of touch with reality. 

Titled The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit, Laura Dern's character, Admiral Holdo, was cut from the film entirely. While Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher and Kelly Marie Tran, all had their roles drastically reduced. And the uploader/editor seemed incredibly pleased with his own work — noting that it's "very watchable" and "actually much cooler" this way — even though we're having an incredibly hard time believing that.
